With such a plethora of blogs, tumblrs, interior design sites, and pinterest boards out there, sourcing the quality over the quantity can be an overwhelming task at best. How do you find them? Just type `design’ or `interior’s into Google and it will boggle the mind.
So we went to the source, and one of Decoration Design Blog’s personal favourites for inspiration, Jen Bishop online editor and founder of Interiors Addict.
In this post, `Top of the Blogs’, Jen divulges her most-looked-at decor and design sites, from interior insights and designer decadence to the ones that just inspire her creatively with beautiful imagery.
Anna Spiro’s Absolutely Beautiful Things
Brisbane interior designer Anna Spiro’s hugely popular Absolutely Beautiful Things has been going since 2006, which is positively vintage in blogging terms! I love this blog for a fix of all things colourful and patterned. Spiro’s brave use of bold, clashing patterns and bright colours works so well and she makes it look so easy. Believe me, it is so not easy to make that kind of look work. Absolutely Beautiful Things gives a great glimpse behind the scenes of this talented woman and has a huge following.
Decor8 is an American blog by Holly Becker which has become so big it has its own book (I can but dream!) which has been printed in several languages. As a fellow design blogger I look up to Becker, who built decor8 from the ground up as one of the first blogs of its kind. She also has a lesser known, more personal blog called Haus Maus about her experiences of being an American living in Germany.
My Vibe My Life by Kelly Wearstler
Another American blog, if you love fashion, interiors, glamour and all things gorgeous, this is the place for you! I don’t mind admitting I have a huge girl crush on interior designer Kelly Wearstler. She’s just so damn glamorous, stylish and cool. And now she has her own fashion and accessories range too. This surprisingly down to earth blog contains snapshots of cool things she’s discovered on her travels plus behind the scenes glimpses, tips and inspiration. Love it.
Mr Jason Grant
Mr Jason Grant is a talented Sydney interior stylist who has his own paint ranges for Murobond. He’s a bit of social butterfly, always blogging from the latest launches and parties and behind the scenes shots of his styling work for magazines. It’s a fascinating glimpse into the everyday life of an in-demand stylist. As one of the first stylists I interviewed for my own blog, I will always have a soft spot for MJG.
